Life without light: microbial diversity and evidence of sulfur- and ammonium-based chemolithotrophy in Movile Cave
Microbial diversity in Movile Cave (Romania) was studied using bacterial and archaeal 16S rRNA gene sequence and functional gene analyses, including ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenaseExpand

Thermodesulfatator indicus gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel thermophilic chemolithoautotrophic sulfate-reducing bacterium isolated from the Central Indian Ridge.
A thermophilic, marine, anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfate-reducing bacterium, strain CIR29812T, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent site at the Kairei vent field on the CentralExpand

Active methylotrophs in the sediments of Lonar Lake, a saline and alkaline ecosystem formed by meteor impact
Lonar Lake is a unique saline and alkaline ecosystem formed by meteor impact in the Deccan basalts in India around 52 000 years ago. To investigate the role of methylotrophy in the cycling of carbonExpand

Novel uncultured Epsilonproteobacteria dominate a filamentous sulphur mat from the 13 degrees N hydrothermal vent field, East Pacific Rise.
Rapid growth of microbial sulphur mats have repeatedly been observed during oceanographic cruises to various deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites. The microorganisms involved in the mat formation haveExpand

Uncultured Archaea in a hydrothermal microbial assemblage: phylogenetic diversity and characterization of a genome fragment from a euryarchaeote.
The polychaete Alvinella pompejana lives in organic tubes on the walls of active hydrothermal chimneys along the East Pacific Rise. To examine the diversity of the archaeal community associated withExpand

Construction of a Shuttle Vector for, and Spheroplast Transformation of, the Hyperthermophilic Archaeon Pyrococcus abyssi
ABSTRACT Our understanding of the genetics of species of the best-studied hyperthermophilic archaea, Pyrococcus spp., is presently limited by the lack of suitable genetic tools, such as a stableExpand

Complete genome sequence of the aerobic marine methanotroph Methylomonas methanica MC09.
Methylomonas methanica MC09 is a mesophilic, halotolerant, aerobic, methanotrophic member of the Gammaproteobacteria, isolated from coastal seawater. Here we present the complete genome sequence ofExpand

Thermophilic Lifestyle for an Uncultured Archaeon from Hydrothermal Vents: Evidence from Environmental Genomics
ABSTRACT We present a comparative analysis of two genome fragments isolated from a diverse and widely distributed group of uncultured euryarchaea from deep-sea hydrothermal vents. The optimalExpand

Metal contaminations impact archaeal community composition, abundance and function in remote alpine lakes
Using the 16S rRNA and mcrA genes, we investigated the composition, abundance and activity of sediment archaeal communities within 18 high-mountain lakes under contrasted metal levels from differentExpand
